Description of problem:
I run Dell Inspiron 3200 with cs4237B sound card.

When I execute "play sample.au" the sample plays too fast (probably about 50%
too fast), so that Linus sounds like Donald Duck.

When I listen to a .wav file using "play", it plays at half speed (and therefore
one octave too low).

Using xmms to play .wav files plays them at quarter speed (two octaves too low).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.As in description

Actual Results:  Sound is played at wrong speed (and pitch)

Expected Results:  Sound should be played at correct speed and pitch!

If sampling issues persist across all combinations of players, it could be a
driver bug.

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
